I began to trust my judgment and to allow my lines to loosen. “Turn” is a good example of how I was able to retain technical proficiency while adding the quality of emotion.

“Horse” is a drawing I created for an illustration mailer that the Studio will be sending out next week.The image also includes a cowboy waiting for a ride. This mailer highlights the Studio’s line art capabilities for illustration and storyboarding. If you would like to receive a mailer, please feel free to contact me and I will add you to the Studio’s distribution list.
